With the future of Sam Allardyce being one of the big talking points around East London this week – after reports claimed Sam is set to walk away from the club in 2 weeks’ time – the attention as to who would take over has seriously hightened.
And it has to be said the outlook at this moment in time is somewhat positive.
It has become clear that Rafa Benitez is keen to move on from Napoli – with the former Liverpool manager rejecting talks of a new deal with the Italian club.
Although tempting Benitez to East London wouldn’t be easy, with Rafa keen on one of the big clubs – Manchester City looking an option – but with the financial package available at West Ham, and not to mention the new Stadium on the horizon, there is still very much a chance.
Also, reports this morning are suggesting that Slaven Bilic is very much open to talk to West Ham, and with only a year left on his current deal at Besiktas this could be an attractive situation for our owners.
The David Moyes link now looks dead, with the former Everton & Manchester United manager keen to remain in Spain for at least another season.
One thing is for sure, and that is if Sam, as expected, does depart this summer, our owners will want a new man in place swiftly to give ourselves the best possible preparation for what is going to be the most important Premier League season in our clubs history.
